Welcome to CEMA

A tradition of excellence was established in 1992 when Cabarrus Emergency Medicine Associates (CEMA) was founded by Dr. Rolland Phillips. A partnership was formed between CEMA and Cabarrus Memorial Hospital in Concord, North Carolina and that relationship has continued to be strong as the hospital has evolved into a regional trauma center now known as CMC-NorthEast.  From the beginning, Cabarrus Emergency Medicine Associates, P.A. made a commitment to provide unsurpassed medical care to the residents of Cabarrus County and that commitment has remained our top priority.

CEMA Team Cabarrus Emergency Medicine Associates, P.A. is now comprised of 31 emergency medicine residency trained physicians who are either board certified or board eligible in emergency medicine and 13 trained physician extenders. In addition, many physicians in the group have successfully earned the distinction of Fellows in the American College of Emergency Physicians (FACEP). Despite many opportunities over the years, Cabarrus Emergency Medicine Associates, P.A. has chosen to provide medical care exclusively at the CMC-NorthEast Emergency Care Center (ECC), which includes its sister facility, CMC-Kannapolis. CMC-Kannapolis opened in early 2012 and is a 24 hour freestanding emergency care center with direct access to CMC-NorthEast and its services.  We are also excited to announce that in July 2014, we are partnering with CMC-NorthEast to open a second 24 hour freestanding emergency care center, CMC-Harrisburg to provide the same excellent medical care.

Since the beginning, Cabarrus Emergency Medicine Associates, P.A. has demonstrated clinical expertise in the management of emergent and urgent medical conditions in an efficient and compassionate manner and that will never change.

"The physicians at Cabarrus Emergency Medicine Associates are committed to always acting in the best interest of the patient."
